    Hi
    I'm new to this chicken forum and was wondering if someone could help me determine if this chicken (which I believe is a EE breed) is a hen or a rooster. I have not gotten any eggs as of yet, but at the same time I am not hearing any morning rooster calls. I'm hoping it is a she [​IMG]. Thanks for your help!

    Looks just like my EE hen, Stella. Except the yellow shanks.

    Well it is most likely a rooster if it has been making rooster calls.The tail feathers look like it is a rooster.So I would say a rooster.






    Have fun with your roo,
